I mentioned this in Randomness a few days ago, but people should be aware of this. There is a massive recall of frozen vegetables ongoing in the US at the moment. Listeria contamination is suspected in frozen organic and regular vegetables processed by CRF Foods in Pasco, Washington. They supply vegetables and ingredients under a large number of brands to many retailers, including Trader Joe's, CostCo, Krogers, and Publix Supermarkets. The recall is not just vegetables, but dishes like stir fries, frozen entrees and salads made with those vegetables. Several lists of some of the products affected are here: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499406.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499568.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499623.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499858.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499852.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
Hello everyone! I'm new to the tabletop/miniature hobby so forgive me if I ask some dumb questions. My husband and I just bought the Descent board game and those figures are BEGGING for some love and paint. Since I'm a graphic designer and painter by trade, the tiny details these guys have really speak to me. So I went down to my local game store (shout out to The Game Keep in Nashville, TN!) and picked these guys up for practice. I love the idea of metal figures because of the weight and because I can strip and repaint them. I wish all my figures were metal! However, I just found out that some Reaper figures are made with a lead alloy. Normally, I wouldn't care because I wasn't planning on eating them....BUT my 3 month old kitten might. I just want to know if any of these are in the P-65 line so extra care can be taken cleaning up the shavings. How can I identify a lead figure in the future? Thanks for the help!
I'm about to actually start tackling my Hearthstone Minis, and I know there are some safety concerns with resin. I'm not sure if this is the right place, but it seemed not horrible location wise. I just wanted to have more info about when I would need to stop worrying about resin dust. Is it safe to remove my particle mask after priming? after a few coats of paint? I've seen some people mention doing cutting or sanding/filing under water, and others just talk about having a very sharp blade for cutting. Outside of the mask and gloves, I'm also planning on doing some basic stuff outside of my usual painting area (which is currently the dining room). Is there a good simple primer for working with resin, the kinds of things you should worry about, and what you can do to make stuff safe? If not can we have people with more experience post stuff here?
Here are MIT's safety procedures for dealing with epoxies: http://www.psfc.mit.edu/esh/epoxy.html Note that epoxy is a skin irritant, especially the hardener part. I'm curious to hear how people deal with this. Does anybody sculpt with protective gloves on?
